New online resource brings science outreach to a broader audience

NEW YORK, Feb. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The RockEDU Science Outreach team at The Rockefeller University has announced the launch of RockEDU Online, a rich portfolio of science education materials now available for learners, educators, and scientists everywhere.

The site was created considering the challenges and limitations of participating in science education activities outside of traditional laboratory settings. RockEDU Online provides creative and well-designed resources that educators can incorporate to enhance their science education practice—including lab experiments, demonstrations, and discussion topics—as well as a Guide to Outreach where scientists can learn about effective tools and strategies for participating in science outreach.

"Science outreach is increasingly becoming part of the scientific enterprise, but many researchers have not had the opportunity to learn the best ways to approach it," says Disan Davis, RockEDU program manager. "The guide is meant to help people be successful in doing outreach."

RockEDU has run on-campus workshops for New York City schools for years. They developed many of the materials on the site in collaboration with Rockefeller scientists, New York City teachers, and fellow outreach professionals. The site was designed by C&G Partners.
